is on the side of gadhafi, he got no votes of support across the u.n. but it is still a potential for america to get sucked into a very dangerous territory where we're not sure who the right rebels are, the right revolutionaries, the people we want to support. so there is natural caution but this is deep dispute for the heart and minds of one man, the president of the united states. here he came out in favor of action, but he took his time. >> richard engel, there are two options we are aware of that the president was offered in libya. one is do nothing, just offer vocal support. the other is what they've chosen to do through united nations which is try to enforce a no fly zone and whatever else the planes may be doing in the air. is there some other set of options that was presented to the president that could reasonably have an effect here? >> reporter: i don't know what options were presented to the president, but you're hitting on something that is essential here. there is a great difference between a no fly zone and a protective shield over the rebels and toppling the regime of gadhafi.
decline. it was common for all of america's older cities. one of the pains of this book is that the american dream doesn't have to lie behind a white picket fence in the suburb. and that cities have been as intrinsic to american history and to our experience as a nation as anyplace else. the very birth of american has its roots in boston in the 1770s between john hancock badly wanted the political change that could be created by a mob. and sam adams who knew how to conjure a mob. and their connections as created by the city of boston changed america, created, helped create this great country of ours. in the 19 century the great problem was making the wealth of the american interior accessible to the market to the east and europe. cities make that happen. they grew up as the great transportation network that enables the rich dark soil of iowa to become productive. if you go back to 1816 it costs us much to move goods 32 miles overland as it did to ship them across the atlantic. it was enormously difficult to access all the wealth that was in the american hinterland. citie
